Holiday Break

Posted in Uncategorized at 9:01 pm by sacetalks

The public education staff here at SACE are off for the holidays! We will return with our first weekly posts of the new year on the week of January 4-8, 2010. We’re glad to have you reading our blog, and we hope to bring you some great new posts after the break.

The following is a list of news articles and editorials on sexual assault in communities across the globe (over the past 7 days).  Many of the articles below may contain victim-blaming language, distortion of information which supports sexual assault myths, and/or triggering content.  What these articles do showcase is the prevalence of sexual assault (given that only a small percentage of the 1 in 10 sexual assaults in Canada which are reported receive media attention, several articles on sexual assault within one week indicate a huge number of assaults), what kinds of sexual assaults are reported and how rampant sexual assault myths are.  Please be aware that SACE does not support the content or delivery of any of the following news pieces.
